They've always been good, but the stuff he's been putting out since around 2014 is simply not to be topped - not even by the stuff put out on budget labels by the mega-corporations who own the original masters (if they bothered to save them). Not only is Szell's Wagner a treat, but five stars to F. Reeder for outstanding work.
